Snack: Cereal Bars

Here’s a delicious treat!

Pack your bags because summertime is here, and adventure is right around the corner! These quick cereal yogurt bars are travel-friendly, super simple, and kid-approved, so plan to pack them along for a delicious way to pass the time. Your child will love gathering familiar ingredients, measuring required amounts, and mixing with great power! Little hands will develop important hand muscles by pressing the mixture into the pan. It’s also fun to learn about using the timer, wrapping up the finished treats, and eating healthy snacks. Then you’re ready to hit the road!

Ingredients:

½ cup honey
¼ cup peanut butter
3 cups toasted oat cereal
1 cup yogurt chips (save ½ cup for melting)
½ cup unsalted toasted almonds, chopped
½ cup dried cranberries
1 teaspoon coconut oil (optional)


Directions:

1. In a bowl, mix honey with peanut butter. Microwave for 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, or until melted.
2. In a large bowl, combine oat cereal, ½ of the yogurt chips (save the other half for later), chopped almonds, and dried cranberries.
3. Pour the melted honey mixture into the bowl and stir until well mixed.
4. Pour into an 8×8 baking pan lined with parchment paper, and gently flatten the mixture evenly around the pan.
5. Freeze for 30 minutes, or until the mixture has hardened enough to cut it into 8 pieces.
6. Melt the other half of the yogurt chips in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time, until melted. (Optional: adding 1 tsp of coconut oil will help with the melting process)
7. Dip the bottom of the bars in the melted yogurt chips and place on a piece of parchment paper. Freeze for another 15 minutes.
8. Wrap each bar in parchment paper & store in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 3 months.
9. Enjoy!
